The lady in the mirror

There’s a weird lady staring at me in the mirror.

I don’t like seeing her, so I try to avoid it… but she’s everywhere… in every reflection of every window. She is there all the time I look down.

I keep trying to make her go away, but I just fail every time.

I’ve changed her hair a couple of times to make her look a bit more like me, but it doesn’t work.

She looks nothing like me.

My children hug her and kiss her and are just not completely disgusted by how gross she looks sometimes.

But I am.

She won’t allow me to do the things I enjoyed doing. She won’t fit into my favorite clothes. She causes pain.

Please, please, please lady… do go away.
